"As even well intentioned folk use the
tragically incorrect phrases: 'races,'
'mixed races,' 'two races,' 'bi-racial,'
'trans-racial,' 'interracial,' 'out of her/his race,'
and other similar
miscontructions and inaccuracies, they
unknowlingly perpetuate
the hueman artificial divisions
they profess to hate"
__________Carol Taylor Quote


"Dear. Ms. Taylor Fri.Aug.7, 1998
I picked up a copy of The Little Black Book (Black Male Survival in America: Staying Alive & Well in an Institutionally Racist Society) at The Shrine of the Black Madonna in Detroit.
I was so impressed that I'm ordering 20 copies for my fellow brothers in Cedar Rapids, IA. It is too bad that we weren't given a copy of The Little Black Book along with our birth certificates at age 0.
Thank you.

Notary Public_________
Sister Carol Taylor, author of "The Little Black Book: Black Male Survival in America," has created what she chooses to call a "disclaimer," to be carried on the person of every Black male in America. The disclaimer seeks to explain to all police authority upon the arrest of a Black male, whether legitimate or not, that the Black male in question has signed and notarized a statement that appears below.
The publisher emeritus with this newpaper, a Black male, has signed and had notarized the statement that appears below, and intends to have it on his person at all times, along with his driver's license or passport.
We suggest that this form be dupicated and edited to suit the need of the individual, notarized and kept on the person of those participating in this important initiative.
